Healthcare Providers

Healthcare professionals are responsible for making recommendations and information for driving safety and responsibilities available to their patients.

To simplify reporting and to make possible a comparison of relative risks and limitations, the Medical Advisory Board has adopted physical, emotional, and behavioral functional ability profiles including 12 categories, with multiple levels under each category.

The legislature eliminated a major obstacle for healthcare professionals with its provision that “A healthcare professional or other person who becomes aware of a physical, mental, or emotional impairment that appears to present an imminent threat to driving safety and reports this information to the division in good faith has immunity from any damages claimed as a result of making the report.”
*Utah Code Annotated 53-3-303
